5:10pm
people should have the same mentality and knowledge. i hope they will. >> the message you want to get out to anyone who sees this about binge drinking. >> binge drinking is very dangerous. like i said, it only takes one mistake for a tragic story to be told and i want people to be more conscious and more responsible. it's okay to have fun, but make sure the guy isn't having that much fun that is driving. >> thank you very much. all right, thank you very much. shaquille o'neil. >> certainly an important meage. >> serious subject, but the first time i had ever seen wisdom look short next to anybody. >> i was thinking the same thing. normally i'm looking at wisdom like this. i was looking at the height difference between him d shaq. >> as we continue, another serious topic, judgment day for a man who admitted running a teenage sex trafficking ring in her own backyard in virginia. we'll take you inside the courtroom. >> plus, why abortion clinics

5:12pm
5:13pm
5:14pm
bomb threats forced hundreds of students and faculty to be evacuated on two college campuses. the first one happened at 8:30 this morning at university of texas in austin. a man claiming to be with al- qaeda had bombs placed all over the campus and they would go off within 90 minutes. the deadline passed after a full sweep of the campus. all buildings were reopened about noontime. and you know what? a similar scare hundreds of miles away at north dakota state university. about sock this morning, the school received a bomb threat and ordered all students and faculty to evacuate. the university didn't give any details about the threat, but later lifted the evacuation order about 1:00. the fbi right now is trying to figure out if the two bomb threats were related. american university says there will be no new breast-
5:15pm
feeding policy following a controversy with a professor who breast-fed her child during class. university does not have a specific policy governing breast-feeding, but says it does follow federal and d.c. guidelines. in a statement released today, it said quote, it supports faculty and staff if they face challenges of balance and provides reasonable breaks in areas for nursing needs. >> another big story we're following tonight. the virginia board of health approved new and stricter regulations for abortion clinics. they must meet the same building standards as hospitals which could put clinics out of business. dr. laura meyers joins us now. dr. meyer, thanks so much for being here. >> my pleasure. >> let's give our audience more background. the board grandfathered in existing measures. include things like wider hallways, phones in the waiting rooms and water fountains. what is your reaction now to this huge turn around by the
5:16pm
board approving this 13-2? >> well, it's very difficult as politics have come before women's health. politics should never interfere with women's health. >> when you say politics, before we get to that, let me ask you, what will the fallout be? we have heard that abortion clinics are saying that they may have to shut down because they don't have the funding to all of a sudden go in and make hallways wider or add some of these additions that they now have to do. >> we are committed to providing care no matter what. we will be there for the women in virginia, but certainly it is going to be much harder for health providers across the state to provide needed healthcare to women. >> back to politics of this. virginia attorney general refused to certify the board's original vote on regulations and told them, if a lawsuit was filed about this, the board members might individually be held liable and the state
5:17pm
wouldn't pay their legal fees. >> i think there's no question of that. and i think that it's very disappointing that once again, the medical community was ignored in favor of politics. >> let me ask you on the other side of this. why shouldn't abortion clinics be held to the same standard as hospitals. shouldn't they be held to the same standard? >> abortion is already regulated in virginia. abortion is one of the safest procedures and so typically, when new regulations do go out, existing facilities would be grandfathered. that is what typically happens. in this case, there was politics interfering with the usual process. >> all right, ceo of planned parenthood in d.c. thank you for coming in today. >> my pleasure.
5:18pm
another pleasant day outside as we take a live look outside the studios. my friend managed to catch a cold it sounds like. how are you doing? >> i'm doing all right. you know, it stinks when you have a cold on days like these. it's a nice day. it's a little more humid. >> i guess it happens to all of us occasionally. >> it will stink for the weekend because it's going to be nice. >> i'll spend it outside. >> i hope you feel better. listen, here's what is going on. satellite and radar. we have seen a few more clouds today coming up from the south. we anticipated that. another thing we anticipate is this frontal system back out to the west of us. it's not a real strong front in the sense that it is creating showers or thunderstorms or anything like that. but it is going to bring a change that the winds are going to kick up and stay on the cool side. the front is right about there. draw it on for you. moving through ohio, so you can see it is kicking up rain out ahead of it.
5:19pm
earlier this week, we thought maybe this front would bring us rain. it could bring us a sprinkle. that's about it. overnight tonight as the front comes through. and there's a secondary front well back out to the north and west that we will reenforce things. we are talking about weather that will keep us in the 70s this weekend. 81 now. again, a little bit more muggy today. gaithersburg 79. frederick sitting at 84 degrees. they have a little bit more shine out to the north and west than what we've had here in town. some clouds around at 7:00. i think a few clouds right on through the evening hours and again, overnight tonight, all we get from this would be some clouds and maybe a sprinkle or two coming on through. the breeze will kick up for tomorrow and again, the weekend at this point is looking pretty nice. we'll have that full forecast coming up. shawn. >> thank you very much. >> coming up tonight on the 5, the boss is back. we are live at nats ball park

5:24pm
he's listed as questionable with a sore foot and will be a game time decision. he can't reinjure the foot. it's more of a pain tolerance issue. he has been the top target. and the redskins, they played the rams the past four seasons going 2-2. this was before the rg3 era begans. and threw for 320 yards and no interceptions and the skins 40- 32 win. while the redskins offense are looking to keep the momentum going, the rams are hoping they can slow griffin and the gang down. >> his debut in the opener as a rookie, statistically is historic. have to go back to 1950 to see that kind of execution. he did a great job. he managed the offense well, extended plays. he throws and clearly caught the saints offguard. >> it's important for our defense to rally. everyone rallies to the ball. you never know with his
5:25pm
athleticism, and rally the troops to swarm mentality to contain them. >> it will be fun to watch. safety williams was fined $25,000 by the nfl for unnecessary roughness in week one. we'll hear from the coach and the nats have a huge series tonight starting in atlanta. >> looking forward to it. thanks lindsey. a new petition is circulating on change.org. calling on the nfl to end its lockout. the petition was started in d.c. by d.c. resident, brian frederick. the replacement referees are harming the game and that could ultimately lead to injuries on the field. so far, more than 4,000 people have signed that petition. >> coming up tonight, a fairfax county man is sentenced for his role in a prostitution ring that preyed on teenage girls. plus, it is being called an abuse of privacy.

so i still haven't met him, will. >> you made us wait for that answer. it was fun seeing you try. you got to meet max, afterall. >> i did meet max. that was fun. >> hopefully you'll meet him. we'll have an update at 10:00. >> thousands of people are heading down there tonight for the concert. everybody going to be good weather wise? >> good. >> are you kidding me? if we had rain, we would be in trouble, wouldn't we? somebody would be in trouble. >> out on a roof deck somewhere, right? >> i'm sure he is chilling, whatever he is doing. >> listen, here's what it looks like outside right there. great evening for us, it is looking like the weekend is going to be real, real nice. even a little fallish tomorrow because what is going to happen is, the winds will be kicking up out of the north and temperatures will be struggling to get into the upper 70s. i think we'll have enough sunshine to get there. here are the headlines for you. first of all, with this cold front coming through, initially this week we thought maybe
5:49pm
there would be a few showers with the front. right now doesn't look like there's a real threat at all. it's looking like it's shaping up to be a great and next week, monday, tuesday, a pretty good chance of some rain coming in. here's specifics on the weekend. 78 tomorrow. 79 on sunday. it will be breezy tomorrow and on sunday, the only thing to deal with will be a few late clouds. 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, we may start seeing a few clouds come in. other than that, it's going be a real nice weekend out there and it is going to stay dry. 81 right now here in town. the same for gaithersburg. frederick coming up in the middle 80s. and i think this evening looks real, real nice. some clouds around at 7:00. a few clouds at 9:00. a few clouds at 11:00. as this front gets closer to us, there will be a chance. i mean, it is a real small chance that perhaps after midnight tonight, 1:00, 2:00 in the morning, you see the rain coming from north and west.
5:50pm
but the front is not all that strong in terms of grabbing moisture and bringing it up ahead of it. so as it comes on through overnight tonight, a very, very slight chance that we'll get a few sprinkles. that will be about the best that we're going to be able to do with that. right now we are 81. behind this frontal system, it is sharply cooler. especially down here in texas. amarillo, 65 degrees. now lincoln with full sunshine, 80. and fargo is 76. but again, behind this front, cooler air coming down out of canada. things have really, really cooled off. so here's future cast tonight at 8:00. a few clouds, but we are dry. you notice the rain back out to the north and the west. as that comes on through, it will dry up. i really believe what we'll get out of this, just a few clouds. tomorrow morning we wake up with sunshine and breezy conditions. and i'm going to let this run all the way through sunday. because we're in good shape. this is sunday at 6:00. future cast trying to bring in
5:51pm
a few clouds late in the day on sunday. but nothing more than that. a little breezy overnight tonight. once the front kicks on through. the winds will become northwest. 64 degrees here in town and just a spotty sprinkle as the front comes on through and that does not mean it's going to be for everybody. a few clouds tomorrow morning, breezy at lunchtime. we struggle under mostly sunny skies to get up into the upper 70s tomorrow afternoon. a little bit warmer on sunday, but still shy of 80 degrees. it does look like rain is likely on monday. showers on tuesday. and then we get a little bit nicer towards the middle part of next week. and that's our fox 5accuweather seven-day forecast. >> the weekend is looking good. >> now to the talk of the town on tmz. another royal caught in the buff. this time it's topless photos of prince william's wife, kate. tmz is live in l.a. harvey, it's great to see you. what in the world? tell us what happened here.
5:52pm
>> well, let me just tell you. the royal family is furious and they are already suing this french magazine, closer, for publishing these photos. they are photos of kate middleton at a very remote castle where she was sunning herself topless with prince william on a balcony. and apparently a photographer was on the street, used a lens and shot her. the royal family says this was an invasion of privacy, file a lawsuit, as i said. the publisher of the magazine has said, look. there were other pictures we didn't publish that are far more intimating that there was some -- these are sex photos almost. when you listen to what the publisher says, that seems to be the upshot of it. she is doing one of two things. either she is saying we were being respectful or she is saying don't mess with us, royal family, or else we'll publish these pictures.
5:53pm
it's not clear which it is. >> it's like a double edged sword if you're a royal. you want your privacy, but maybe you were some place where the public can see you. it's rough when you're in a situation like that. speaking of royalty -- >> shawn, i do want to say. it's rough. there's a difference between prince harry and this. prince harry was in a room filled with all these people where people are taking pictures and he sees it all and you know, doing what he does. there's a huge difference, i think, between that and then these part-time in a remote area where there's no expectation that they'll have their picture taken and all of a sudden, boom. >> i agree with you. let's talk about some of our local royalty here in the u.s. george clooney's girlfriend is trying on engagement rings. say it isn't so. the ultimate bachelor is what, going to get hitched now? >> no, i think it's the opposite. i think it's over. that's the kiss of death.
5:54pm
it's the kiss of death. when canalis gave an interview to an italian magazine saying she wanted to have kids and married. george got rid of her. and stacey was joking around by getting this big wedding ring. i think she is playing with fire. i think it's going to scare the heck out of george. >> everybody knows by now it's bad luck not to do that. we'll be looking because we know you'll have the scoop first. harvey, we'll see you right here at 6:30. >> let's head over to brian bolter now for a look at what's coming your way next on the news edge at 6:00. hey brian. >> new on the news edge, scammers sentenced, a man defrauding a dozen people who are trying to save their homes goes to jail. and police nab a man minutes before he steps on a plane with a gun. plus, a much longer battery life. is the iphone 5 worth all the buzz? tech gurus lay it out straight ahead on the news edge at 6:00.

nba superstarlet it all out during a media event for its own shoes yesterday. the chicago bulls player watched a video clip of himself tearing his acl and rehabilitating the injury. when asked about his fan support, he broke down in tears barely able to speak. >> i can't explain this. i can't. went through so much. to have true fans. >> rose had surgery on his knee and says it's getting better and he started jumping a few days ago. a big step in his recovery. maybe jumping in the new shoes as well. >> absolutely. >> nice to see the motion.
5:59pm
>> i'm going to guess that made his fans love him even more, just to appreciate the realness he showed. >> i think you're right. they have to put of such a tough exterior. it's very special. >> yeah, it is. thanks so much for joining us tonight at 5:00. >> the news edge at 6:00 with brian bolter starts right now. this is fox 5 news edge at 6:00. >> right off the top, a maryland man is sentenced to seven years in jail after being convicted of scamming nearly a dozen people who thought they were saving their homes from foreclosure. he took about $5,000 from each person. fox 5's john hanrahan in the courtroom at the time of the sentencing. it doesn't seem like a lot of money and a stiff sentence for a white collar crime. >> it was. in court the judge called it a classic advanced fee scheme. that's where the victim paid some trust money to prove they are serious about the deal. in this case, the scam
